Abstract

In many studies involving dynamic models of power systems, fast simulation is needed such as in using direct methods of stability analysis where a number of contingencies have to be simulated in a very short time. In this paper we propose a method which uses piecewise linearization of the nonlinearities combined with trapezoidal integration of the differential equation to approximate the trajectory of a multimachine system with classical model representation. The technique is illustrated for faults on a 3- and 10-machine system and the computational savings are discussed with respect to a fourth-order Runge-Kutta method.
